"When I wa'iTia Europe I learned of a simple and effective method of rendering to bacco entirely harmless without destroy ing its aroma. The method was discov ered by Dr. Gantrelet, of Yichy. and it should be regarded as a priceless boon to smokers. It consists of a small piece of cotton -wool; steeped in a 5 or 10 pel cent, solution of pyrogallio acid, inserted in pipe or oigar-holder. Thia will neutralize any possible ill effects of the nicotine, In this way not only may the generally admitted evils of smoking be overcome, but cirrosis of the liver," •which is sometimes caused by tobacco, ind lisrhter effeots : of over-indulgence, such as - headache and furring of the tongue,' may be avoided.
